Overbearing Grandmother

I have a mother who has always been too controlling all my life and likes to give advice about everything even though I never ask her for advice. I am a grown woman, married and have a gorgeous healthy 4-year-old daughter. She gets colds from kids, very normal of course. I feel I have healthy parenting techniques and think that my child is pretty darn healthy compared to a lot of other kids. She...

We weren’t thinking and I ended up in a situation where I was his VERY young (21) mistress. He’s the love of my life, but he already has children – something I’ve wanted of my own. They are sons roughly...

Is There Something Wrong with My Mind?

As a child I was sexually abused for 4 years. No one knows. The only reason it stopped was because he died. Whilst that ended by the time I was 11 I still think about it and get upset. Lately however some feelings have developed that scare me. My family is very traditional. We all sit and have dinner in silence, father is the head of the household, and I am expected to be...

Possession? Hallucination?

I’ve never been formally diagnosed with anything which makes me more confused. I am possessed by demons, that much I know is certain. I self-harm, see and hear things, and have other symptoms of possession. They keep me from sleeping, eating a lot of the time, and even are messing with my thoughts. They have been threatening to jump and torment my family too. The only way I can prevent it is to kill...
